Electronics Technician Fundamentals is a one-year program that focuses on the installation and assembly of a wide variety of electronic equipment. In addition to comprehensive training in electronic theory, lab experience is an integral part of the program. The study areas include AC/DC principles, transistor operation, digital circuits, soldering and fabrication techniques. The operation and use of various test and diagnostic equipment is included throughout the curriculum. The program prepares the students for a broad range of entry-level electronic assembly positions.
Gateway Electronics program students begin working with electronics on the first day of class. Topics covered in the program include installation, maintenance, modification, diagnosis and troubleshooting of a wide variety of electronic equipment. After comprehensive training in electronic theory, skills are practiced in the lab including the operation and use of various testing and diagnostic equipment.
The Mechatronics associate degree focuses on the design and development of industrial robots and other equipment. Students gain firsthand experience in pneumatics, hydraulics and electrical servo drives. They also test each piece of equipment to demonstrate the interaction between each of the components.
Learn how to assist in designing the products of tomorrow and the machines that make them in Mechanical Design Technology program at Gateway Technical College. Gateway offers two associate degree programs in Mechanical Design Technology and Mechanical Design Technology – Mechatronics. Both mechanical engineering technicians and mechatronics technicians help mechanical engineers design, develop, test and manufacture special machinery, consumer products and other equipment. They develop sketches and rough layouts, record and analyze data, and make calculations and estimates.
The Mechanical Design Technology - Mechanical Engineering Tech associate degree program focuses on industrial machinery and consumer products. Courses will focus on drafting and technical drawing as it is the means by which mechanical engineers design products and create instructions for manufacturing parts. Students will take courses including Elements of Machine Design, Motor Controls, Strength of Materials, Engineering Graphics with CAD and Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing.
Help reduce the need for fossil fuels by obtaining an Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) – Sustainable Energy Systems degree at Gateway Technical College.
Associate degree students learn the foundation of “green” electrical systems. They can perform system maintenance and repair of Solar Photovoltaic systems. These renewable energy systems use solar panels to convert sunlight into electricity.
